Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
...Boris seems to be betting the EU will allow a de facto free trade situation to arise without any guarantees of regulatory alignment or compliance.

It's the standard UK elite's psychosis.  They simply cannot grasp The Other is self-actualized, capable of acting in their own self-interest.  The EU made the mistake of validating this dysfunction by continually backing down from the deadlines.  So now the silly sods really do think the EU will allow the UK to have all the rights and privileges of EU membership without the duties, costs, and responsibilities.
